5.0 out of 5 stars It not only swings --- it's H O T * * * * *, July 23, 2005
This review is from: Rock Swings (Audio CD)
I have never been a fan of Paul Anka. Nevertheless, I must declare this CD is so far THE BEST CD of 2005.

On this project, Anka accomplishes what numerous artists have recently failed to do. He presents a strong cover filled CD that sounds totally original, exciting and musically fresh.

The solid musical arrangements breathe new life into each song. Anka and the producers twisted the concept of cover album by recording recent rock hits and turning them into instant standards. Each song is brilliant!

The album is fresh, innovative and fun.

His vocals are near perfect. You don't have to be a fan of the "Sinatra style" to enjoy this cd but you do have to open your mind and ears and appreciate music in general.

Anka broadens the appeal of each song.

Due to this CD, a new segment of the audience is bound to discover and admire this legendary artist. He is the going to be labeled by MTV and VH1 fans as the new hip artist of this decade, as TONY BENNET was during the mid 1990s.

If this CD does not obtain the merited recognition as Album of the Year at next year's Grammy Awards then something is wrong with the music industry. I thought this album was going to be kitsch and a stale joke as was the case several years ago with the Pat Boone rock songs project, I was wrong.

This CD is HOT, TRENDY and an instant MUST OWN NOW.
